Build a Mosque

Non specified donations are split equally between as many mosque building projects as possible so that you contribute to building as many masjids as possible.

Help a Refugee

Refugees have for several years now been amassing on the edges of Europe, North Africa and the Balkans. Held in squalid conditions. Refugees flee a world of pain, hardship, war and torment to be held in detention centres and slums. Those who do make it into the EU often struggle to find work, training or education.

Working with a network of organisations we aim to provide not just on site essentials such as toys for children, medical supplies, food, clothes and hygiene supplies. We also aim to provide education, language courses and job training. This assistance gives a fresh start and a fighting chance to join main stream society in Europe. Not only benefiting the refugees but also the local communities they join and contribute towards for many years.

To select this option please select “Second Chance Program” on the list, then enter “Refugees” in the message box.


Working with individuals and organisations around the world we contribute towards research into the cures, preventions, treatments, devices and surgical techniques to make tomorrow a healthier, happier place that is that little bit less scary.

Where possible we also provide resources and materials such as PPE and walking aids to medical centres free of charge.

To specify a particular condition, procedure or device you wish to donate to please use the send a message section on the donate form. Eg. Cancer Research, Heart Disease, Mental Health Treatments, PPE, walking aids etc.
